Hello Again,

Joy of  joys, after a really long spell of gloomy, wet and windy weather, today there was sunshine in my little corner of the countryside. Overnight there had been a fairly hard frost and the fields were white and sparkled in the winter sun.  Simple things, but they make me very happy.

On the crafting side of life, today I would like to share a project using Claritystamp stamp set Doodleology Square Mixed Impressions and the matching stencil.

Once again I have used dye based inks for this project.  I began by brushing a pale colour through the stencil - it is quite an intricate stencil, so I needed to hold each section in place as I worked, in order to retain crisp lines. Then I stamped the image in black archival ink on another piece of card.  There are small infill stamps in this set which I have used to colour the white areas to co-ordinate with the background piece.  Keeping it clean and simple I have mat and layered with white card onto a white base card.

If you have time I would love to hear what you think (please be nice!) by leaving me a comment.

Happy Crafting

  1. I like it Anne. Clean, simple and elegant.

  2. Agree it is nice to see blue sky and sunshine after a week of grey days and relentless rain. Love what you've done with these stamps and stencil. I've avoided temptation - so far anyway!

  3. I love it. I bet you could do a whole set of these and change the colour so they looked different!
    Thank you for your inspiration. Xxx

  4. A stunning card Anne - the stamp and stencil make a wonderful focal point and I love how you have coloured it

  5. A beautful card Anne, a fabulous CAS design.
